Marvel Collector Corps - Ant-Man / by Craig Kerbrat

Friday at work, I had a random visit from Andrea at my desk. It's not uncommon for her to show up and chat, she does work right upstairs, but this time was different. She was particularly excited. And then she lifted up a couple of matching boxes and I knew why.

Our Marvel Collector Corps - Ant-Man boxes arrived! We very excitedly opened them up immediately at my desk, so there was no chance to do an unboxing video. Upon first opening it up, we were treated to some Ant-Man comic art and a pin and badge like last time.

After pulling everything out, I had to quickly stuff it all back in the box so I could help a customer out, but below is a picture of everything that was inside. There were two Marvel Mystery Minis (an Ant-Man and a Yellow Jacket), an Ant-Man t-shirt featuring an "actual size" Ant-Man, and Ant-Man #5 featuring an exclusive variant cover.

I haven't been reading Ant-Man, but I'll give this issue a read just to see what the fuss is all about. I've heard good things about it. But back to the box the last thing inside was this:

A Funko Pop! Unmasked Ant-Man, with a tiny little Ant-Man bobble-head. This is definitely my favourite part of the box, and it's what makes it totally worth it. The detail on these two figures is great, and I'm happy to add them to my Pop! collection. I'm not really a big fan of Ant-Man in the comics, but I'm really looking forward to the movie, and this box was full of win. 

I'm really curious what the next theme is going to be. There are no more major Marvel movies coming until next year, and that's been the focus so far. They could go with something comics-related. Secret Wars will be half over, but they'll have all of the All-New All-Different Marvel titles announced by then. They could also do something Marvel TV-related. Agents of SHIELD starts a month later so maybe they'll feature that.

Whatever they decide to do, I'm sure it will be great. I'm definitely not regretting my decision to sign up for Collector Corps.
